Nomination Title: ”Jackass 3D” Global Mobile Advertising Campaign

    Tell the story of this nominated marketing campaign for the judges (up to 500 words). Describe the genesis, planning, execution, and results to date of your campaign. If applicable, remember to describe what's unique or innovative about your campaign:

        Paramount Pictures teamed with Millennial Media to create the advertising industry’s first global mobile rich media campaign. The campaign was designed to drive excitement and ticket sales for the upcoming Jackass 3D movie release, and represented Paramount’s largest mobile campaign budget to date.

        The campaign leveraged Millennial Media’s extensive global network to reach
consumers on four continents, in ten countries, six languages and across all
major mobile operating platforms (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, etc). Through
Millennial’s targeting capabilities, the campaign was featured in channels most
likely to reach the Jackass target audience of Adults 17-24.

        Millennial Media worked closely with Paramount and their agency, MEC, to develop
a compelling mobile experience that was relevantly themed with the Jackass
franchise.  The final creative featured HTML 5 Rich Media ad units, and a
unique, in-ad, interactive game.  The game was titled “Whack-a-Jackass,” and
users could play a version of “Whack-a-Mole” with their favorite Jackass
characters. After playing the mobile game, users could share results on Facebook
and visit the movie’s mobile site to purchase tickets, watch a trailer of the
movie, or view photos and additional videos.

        The global mobile advertising campaign delivered higher than average engagement
across all geographic locations and a significant number of consumers played the
interactive game more than once. Jackass 3D brought in $50 million at the box
office in the opening weekend, and over $115 million in the first two months
that the movie was in-market.
